Mark,

I've always loved your setup. Works well for us OCD types. One thing I did that I would recommend is to put 'supports' in the center of the shelves as even the good wood will sag over time. Basically I worked from the bottom up, cutting a 1/2 inch thick by 2 inch wide board to the length of space between the shelves. So the bottom shelf will help support the 2nd shelf, and so on up. The thickness still fits between the binders just fine but provides additional support for the shelves in the center.

I am going to a show this week and am going to experiment with picking up some four pockets to keep big cards in two pieces in the binder. Set in question is my 1967 topps. Certainly Mantle/Brooks/Seaver/Carew are obvious choices, but actually pretty much all the highs are expensive and stubborn to find.

Default Binders

I kept all my cards in binders for years. Most were 1959- 90's on up. They weren't handled, just stored. I found over time the 70's cards corners broke down.
I finally took them out put them in sleeves in top loaders. I had probably
14 Brett and Yount rookies that wouldn't grade over a 7. Made me sick.
Newer cards may hold up better, but my older cards didn't. Don't know if
its the part of the country but I took all my cards out of binders and tossed them.

I'm kinda torn here. Originally I had wanted to keep my sets in binders instead of just the boxes they are now in. I like being able to page through and look at them. I talked myself out of it though, based on what just seemed to me to be an inadequate way to store them. After seeing the picture posted above of all those nicely organized and uniform sets.... Man, I sure would love to do that.
It's a good thing I'm both busy and lazy I guess. Beautiful picture by the way.

How did you have them stored? Never heard of cards getting broke down by just sitting in binders. Makes me a little scared! I have 1953-1979 Topps sets in binders and 1950-1955 Bowman as well.

+1. Yikes! Same here (although not as extensive)

I have 1970-2015 Topps and 1996 -2015 Topps Chrome Refractors including all the colors in binders. I am still working on many of the colored refractor sets, but I haven't noticed any cards breaking down. I guess I should check them all again.

I recently started collecting again, and I definitely use binders and ultra pro pages. I'm kind of obsessive about organization of my collection.
